Happy Monday, Friends! I hope you all had a great weekend! Ours had its ups and downs but either way I'm actually glad it's Monday b/c the hubs is off and we have 2 episodes of the Bachelorette to catch up on! :)

Nonetheless, here is a sneak peek from our wknd.

After Bible School all week, we were all pretty wiped out on Saturday morning. I made a deal with the kids that if they helped me clean and played well together that day, I'd treat them to the new Minion movie this week. And they certainly held up their end of the bargain. We all took our time cleaning a little and relaxing a little!

Until it was time for naps - then the power went out! UGH! Literally not 5 minutes after we all went to have some "quiet time" in our own rooms, it went out. The kids were scared to ran to my room (b/c we all use box fans in our bedrooms for noise and w/o the fans, it was oddly quiet). It was cute (at first..ha!). But the power stayed off until 7pm that night. UGH! So our day didn't finish out the way we had hoped. I will say, though, the kids were really good sports about the whole thing.

On Sunday we went to church and then I tried to get my daughter to take my "bump" pic. I was 14 weeks last Friday and with the hubs working nonstop, we didn't have a chance to snap one. The black dress doesn't really do the bump justice, but I guess you can still see it. :)

That evening we went back to church for the VBS program. My sweet girl rocked every song! And my little man was singing his heart out from the pew. :)

I hope y'all have the best week. My hubs is working a ton of overtime (BOO!), so I'm hoping to mix in some work (room rearranging/baby preps) and also some fun (pool time and movie time).
Have a great Monday!

And don't forget my link ups with Biana and Meghan.


  1. That bump....adorable !!!! And igh for no power. That's the worst..especially in the summer !

  2. I'm sorry the hubs is working so much! Hopefully that slows down soon so you can get in some quality time and baby prep together!
    I'm glad that the power wasn't out for any longer than it already was--those days are never fun, but it sounds like you guys made the best of it! Did you go and see the Minion movie yet? If so,how was it?
    Hope you have a great Monday!!
